Help Me Find a Drug Rehab Center

All about Drug Rehabilitation in Laconia

Drug abuse is not only detrimental to physical health, but also, has tremendous effects on the psychological stability of the addict. Drugs cause problems the user as well as to all those that care about him. Substance abuse has ripped many families apart. Fortunately help is available, however the first step towards getting help lies in accepting that there is a drug abuse problem. This is where the value of a loving and supportive family becomes evident. Without some sort of a support group, it is very hard for an addict to find enough courage to accept help for their problem. Family and friends can be a motivating factor which leads the addict toward recovery.

Is Going To A Rehab Center Necessary?

Yes. The process of drug rehabilitation is very complicated and requires the help of trained professionals. Also, the entire recovery process demands a high level of commitment, which is more achievable in the supervised atmosphere of a drug rehab center.

Going to a rehab facility in Laconia will let the patient mingle with people suffering from similar or worse cases of addiction. This gives patients hope and assurance that they are not alone.

How Long Does it Take to Complete A Drug Rehab In Laconia?

The duration of a drug rehabilitation program depends on the type and severity of addiction and on the willingness of the addict to work with the program. A simple detox program takes approximately three days or so. However, cleansing the body of existing drugs is not the only motive of a rehab center.

The main goal of any rehab facility in Laconia is to make certain that the person is drug-free, and capable of living a productive and healthy life without risk of a relapse. There is no distinct time frame to drug treatment, it depends on the specific person. Some might find it beneficial to attend meetings and support groups long after their stint in the rehab. Others might choose to quit the program after detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

Many rehab centers in Laconia offer either short term programs or long term programs. In short term treatment, the addict resides in the rehab facility for a period of one or two months. During this time, the patient goes through a complete detoxification and is educated about addiction and its various causes. The patient learns about handling peer pressure, stress and is encouraged to talk about problems. A short term rehab program is more effective than solely a three day detox, and greatly reduces the chance of a relapse.

A long term rehab facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts prone to relapses are recommended for such a program. This facility encourages addicts to live independently by letting them take part in household tasks, learn vocational skills in addition to group therapy. Living in a long term rehabilitation program acclimatizes addicts with the idea of adjusting in normal society after the rehab program. Such facilities are intended to lower the rate of relapses.

Conclusion

An ideal drug rehabilitation center should treat a patient's addiction, as well as take steps to prevent relapses. Along with therapy it is important that addicts be treated with respect and care to help see them through the program.
